Episode 69: The Journey to Retirement with Fritz Gilbert

Wealth On Any Income Podcast Episode 69

In Episode 69 of the Wealth On Any Income Podcast, Rennie is joined by Fritz Gilbert. Fritz retired in 2018 at the age of 55 after a 33-year career in Corporate America. For the past 6 years he has been writing about his preparation for – and transition into – retirement on The Retirement Manifesto, the award-winning blog he began 3 years prior to his own retirement.

In addition to the blog, Fritz published his first book in 2020, Keys to a Successful Retirement, which captures the key things he learned from his personal journey into retirement.

  • Reframing the word retire to re-tire

  • What is ‘One More Year Syndrome’ and how it can benefit you in retirement.
  • The 90-10 Rules of Retirement.
